County renews commitment to community Sheriff’s Office in Fairwood

Summary

The Sheriff's Fairwood community storefront office will continue in its current location.

Story

The King County Council today unanimously approved a lease extension for the Sheriff’s Fairwood community storefront office. The contract extends the lease by three years, with three additional one-year options.

The Fairwood office is used by Sheriff’s deputies to conduct a variety of routine business, such as completing reports, without the need to return to the main precinct office in Maple Valley. Keeping officers in the Fairwood community helps provide quicker response times and more opportunities for officers to interact with local residents and businesses.

“Maintaining a storefront office in the Fairwood community is a true benefit to the residents and helps the Sheriff to serve the community more effectively,” said Councilmember Reagan Dunn, who represents the Fairwood area on the Council.

“For 50 years, the Sheriff’s Office has been proud to partner with the residents of Fairwood to keep the community safe,” said Sheriff John Urquhart.  “Keeping and maintaining a storefront office in Fairwood signals our intention to partner with the community for years to come.”

The Fairwood storefront office, located at 17620 140th Ave S #C-10, has been open since 2005. The Fairwood community is located in unincorporated King County nestled between Kent, Renton and Maple Valley.
